4).3/25/95,Charlotte,NC.----for simply being,sweet.
3).6/25/94Vegas.----Though obviously,looking exhausted due to the heat,110 that day!He sang with a oddly calming and gentle tone,very nice touch to an already great tune.
2).7/9/95,Chi-town.----This isn`t a suprise!Though the compilation track is what is heard these days.The original recording that day,was flawless up to the muffed up,final verse.`95 was doomed from the start.It wasn`t the band,but the run-away,so- called"kidz"on lot,that started the"darkness."
1).10/1/94,Boston,MA.----Jerry swaps,"to EASE" with,"to HEAL my soul."Then delivered the line with such feeling.At no time,was Jerry`s heart,ever"not"in the music.But,there is always that guy,blaming the"cloud of doom,"that cast the "darkness" on them,all on Jerry`s shoulder`s,as if he didn`t bare enough already.They majority,all seemed to be judging him,in a negative sense,WHY?HOW?...anyway,the line,"Lonely,when I call your name!"Has a pinch of pizzazz added,as well.One things for sure,Jerry was feelin`fine and it came through in the music that night.One of the best shows of`94,by far.

These are my opinion,and mine only.From the small batch of times played,many monumental versions are out there,and you may disagree with my order or venue completely.If so,tell me which one`s you love,if I haven`t already heard it or simply have forgotten how great it was,I`d really like to know.


STOP HATE....its so much easier to LOVE!

Deer Creek in June 1992 is a great one. Pretty much one of the only "flawless" ones ever performed. Very cool opening to the 2nd set in that show too.

I would love to listen to this , but the SBD's hurt my ears , and the AUD's aren't so hot ( even GEMS ).
Hunter , any thoughts on this one ?
The pitch is way off .

Pitch sounds fine to me, but to each his own.

and don't forget to check out the So Many Roads rehearsal sessions from 2/13/92 and 2/21/92. A great embryonic jigsaw puzzle of chords and vocal accompaniment.

The second set is pretty smokin' for late 90's. The Playin gets so weird they don't know how to bring it back, reminds me of a early 70's bad acid trip.
